Republicans believe President Obama is from Kenya and will need a passport to reenter the country.
The obama administration seems to be going out of the way to prove the republican conspiracies about the obama administration are true.

First Benghazi was a coverup, democrat party it's straight up statist, the Fascist Obama administration has criminalized the API and news-gathering process, the IRS, NSA and PRISM spying has become an obama gestapo agencies, big government communist sellouts and whistleblowers, next we will be finding Obama Bin Lyin real birth certificate...

Even if you're between the age of 30-39, your rate increase could be as much as 49%.
Don't forget, everyone MUST have insurance by January 1 or be fined, i.e. taxed, by the IRS.
And if your state didn't opt out of ObamaCare, hope you can figure out the online application for the government exchanges too. I hear it's a doozy.
Welcome to the wonderful and wacky world of ObamaCare!

LOL. The Bush administration wasn't exactly known for it's "transparency" and honesty.
According to Russ Tice, a NSA former intelligence analyst and a 2005 whistleblower, the NSA under Bush spied on some of the most powerful people in the U.S. government including Obama, journalists, news agencies, "members of Congress, both the Senate and the House, especially the intelligence committees, armed services committees, and judicial, as well as lawyers, anti-war groups, and American businesses and banks that operate internationally."
Bush also target Hugo Chavez big time.
However, we all know you won't embrace the words of a Bush administration whistle blower...that's just not in your nature.

http://venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/9792
The logical conclusion is that if Bush didn't blatantly go after his political enemies using the IRS...and if Bush didn't call his opposition "a potential threat to democracy...and if Bush's DOJ didn't illegally confiscate emails and phone records of an opposition in the press...and if Tice's, like Snowden's, allegations are true that "the abuse is rampant"...and if the NSA has increased capabilities allowing them to copy "every domestic communication in this country word for word"...shouldn't we have every reason to be even more concerned under Obama than under Bush?
Considering this president made it quite clear early on that some of us are his enemies?

It sure would've concerned me if Bush had made that clear right before individual liberals and liberal organizations were targeted and interrogated by the FBI and a liberal journalist's emails and phone records were illegally confiscated by Bush's Attorney General - knowing what we know now about the NSA.

Very concerned...even as a conservative.

Shouldn't we be more concerned now since this president and his administration act like they are completely immune from any scrutiny because of a disengaged media?

Wouldn't you be more concerned if the shoe was on the other foot - your foot to be precise?

She's a Democrat her and Trayvon's friends both seem shocked that someone would accuse them of being racist.

How about another Democrat-Alec Baldwin being a homophobe

"Baldwin tweeted after James Gandolfini’s funeral on Thursday: "[I’d] put my foot up your f**king ass, George Stark, but I'm sure you'd dig it too much,” and, "I'm gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna f**k you... up."

And let me say a big fat thank you for supporting ObamaCare since I'm one of the "lucky" ones not in the "younger/healthier" crowd. Ironic that the younger healthier folks will pay a lot more than the rest of us, huh?

Wonder how that's going to go over. And here you thought ObamaCare was going to be the best thing since sliced bread.

Get a washcloth. That egg on your face must be getting dried and cracked by now.

Bush seems on board with National Security
Bush did not directly say whether he thinks Snowden can be labeled a “traitor” but said he knows the country has been hurt as a result of the leaks.
“I think he damaged the security of the country,” Bush said on CNN while visiting Africa, adding that President Barack Obama will deal with the situation.
Bush also defended the surveillance program, which began during his administration after Sept. 11, saying the programs guarantee civil liberties are protected.
“I put the program in place to protect the country and one of the certainties is civil liberties were guaranteed,” Bush said. He went on to say there needs to be a balance between security and privacy when protecting the country.
“I think there needs to be a balance, and I think as the president explained there’s a proper balance,” he said.
